Test & Installation Engineer

What is a Test and Installation Engineer? Once our assembly team have finished initial construction of each mass spectrometer, our team of Test and Installation Engineers is responsible for bringing them online, installing their end user configuration and running them through a series of calibrations and performance specifications. Due to the small-scale nature of the manufacturing, there are often problems that need to be solved along the way. Once tested, the instruments are shipped out to their end users around the globe. Once delivered, our Test and Installation Engineers travel out to these sites and set the mass spectrometers up in the end users’ laboratories, recalibrate them and teach the end users how to operate and maintain their new mass spectrometers.

This role suits those who are naturally curious, comfortable with solo international travel and able to work well with a diverse range of people. Experience working with scientific equipment is desirable, along with a basic understanding of physics, chemistry and electronics

Founded in 1995, Nu Instruments has established itself as a market leader in  Glow Discharge Mass Spectrometry   (GD-MS), Isotope Ratio Mass Spectrometry (IRMS), Thermal Ionisation Mass Spectrometry (TIMS) and Noble Gas. Our high-end mass spectrometers are analytical instruments used to characterise the isotopic or elemental composition of various samples, providing precious information such as the history, the age, the provenance or the purity. Nu's innovating mass spectrometers are installed worldwide in academia, governmental and industrial research labs, and serve a wide range of applications such as: determining isotope ratios in various geological samples to provide datation data, creating elemental images of biomedical or geological samples, measuring isotope ratios to determine the provenance, origin of food samples, measuring nanoparticles size and determining the purity of a material.

All our instruments are designed, assembled and tested on site in our factory. Nu joined AMETEK in 2016. Nu’s head office, manufacturing facility and labs are located in North Wales, UK.
